Caryn, Thank you again very much. You made the day! I like the idea of the anthem next year. Take care, Bill
Booking was very easy due to a knowledgeable and pleasant staff at Curtis Knight.
Team Member Caryn was early for set up, did complete set up and takedown easily herself, played all requested music and played music genre for the audience. Caryn was fun and a pleasure to deal with.
Caryn made the event very enjoyable for all who were present. Caryn also took on added responsibility of handing out trophies, etc. Then, Caryn got audience to participate in a fun trivia game. A true professional. We thank her very much!

The DJ was on time, experienced, chipper and played all the music the entire wedding guest loved!!! She had all the timings perfect for the ceremony and she even got on the dance floor with my younger guests and danced with them. She was a pleasure to have there and we could not have asked for a better DJ.

Hi Curtis, My volunteer booked the entertainment for this event, but from what she has mentioned it was simple and quick. Caryn was great! Her playlist was perfect for the vibe of the event. The weather potentially made this difficult.
Can’t wait to work with you again.

Caryn was on time, set up everything fast and was willing to stay later when asked. A+ She was professionally dressed in appropriate attire for the event and was very personable and willing to help out where needed. She was outgoing but at the same time laid back as I requested previously. She was a pleasure to do business with and if/when we have another event, will be requesting her to DJ!!!
Caryn played all my requests as previously given and hit the nail right on the head for the appropriate music for our Luau occasion! It was perfect! Overall Rating: A+

It was a lot of fun, and you are extremely easy to work with. Curtis spent a great deal of time on the phone with me (I’m the mother of the bride) listening to what we were looking for and trying to be sure we had exactly the right person for We loved working with Caryn. It was all completely positive! We were all delighted with her contributions! Thanks for everything–we would definitely hire Caryn again for our next event. Carol Anne Myers
DJ: Caryn Russo I tried to coordinate my remarks with Margaret but she wanted to send you her own individual email. So below are my comments. I wrote them in 3rd person because I thought you might want to forward them on to Curtis.
Caryn was right on time and set up very efficiently. We weren’t allowed to stay late at the venue so this issue didn’t come up. Caryn looked beautiful and elegant. Her presentation and attire was exactly what we were looking for in a D.J. We really liked Caryn from the first time we met her, and we knew she would be a perfect match for us and our wedding. We knew that we needed a D.J. on the quiet, low-key side, and she was perfect. My daughter had a very non-traditional wedding and Caryn was always supportive of our ideas, even when it meant she didn’t get to do some of the “traditional” things D.J.’s are accustomed to doing. She was flexible, and helped us with our planning but without putting any pressure on us to do things the way other people might do them.
I had little to do with the music selection, but I think my daughter was delighted with the way the music turned out. I was so busy talking with people that I never even got to dance, even to the songs I had picked! I understand that other people danced and enjoyed them, however. We would give Caryn the highest rating possible (10 out of 10!). Not only did she do a great job throughout the day and evening, but she also had to diplomatically negotiate with a difficult function manager. Caryn handled everything with grace and patience. If we need a D.J. in the future, we would definitely want to have her again!

Caryn did play for an additional hour with just a Big Smile and two thumbs up. She Was a Great. She fit right in with our group. She wa bubbly, Sweet, but in charge. We loved her and the kids flocked to her. Bride and Groom had there songs, but she keep the dance floor full. C.K. has the best. Caryn was an absolute joy. So friendly and willing to work with us on everything. She had a lot of experience and provided us with many good suggestions as well. She was willing to accommodate all our requests, providing it was within her ability and was appropriate for all the guests. We were very pleased with the over-all entertainment and she was continually on top of everything to make sure all went according to giving the Bride and Groom a memorable event. Aside from our personal selections; Caryn seemed to have a sense of what the crowd liked. She played just the right songs that kept everything going and the dance floor was always hopping. Personally I give Caryn an A+ for all her effort and extra nice personality. Her willingness to please was extra special for me, because, my request entailed playing DVD’s which she hooked up to her sound system. It went over very well…. to everyone’s enjoyment. Most people think there’s always room for improvement. However, when you do something for a living, all the time, most of the kinks get ironed out pretty good. That was the case with Caryn. For me, it went so well that I just can’t think of anything that needed improvement. I would recommend her to anyone that would be looking for a DJ. Thank you, Caryn for all your services, including coming to pick up the DVD’s ahead of time, at my home, for testing out the system. That was above and beyond the expectations. Sincerely Susan M. Daniels (Grooms Mother)
